Run, Walk, Play but DON’T SKIP! (The 23rd Annual Komen Race for the Cure)

Diagnostic Imaging Centers is teaming up with Susan G. Komen of Greater Kansas City as the local presenting sponsor for their annual Race for the Cure, now in its 23rd year (!). This year’s Race for the Cure is scheduled for August 14th and is back at Union Station.

While nothing in life is guaranteed, we know that certain behaviors make certain results more likely. For instance, studying tends to improve test results. And practicing the piano makes for a better recital. And most important for this powerful fundraising event… funding research brings us steps closer to a cure for breast cancer.

The Race for the Cure is guaranteed to be fun and inspirational. There is no more awesome site on an early August morning than a sea of people in every shade of pink – united in the cause to end breast cancer forever. This race event will encompass people from all parts of our city, from all walks of life. There will be athletes of the serious and non-serious variety, survivors, co-survivors and all kinds of caring people – united we will be!

As medical doctors, we dream of the day when breast cancer is no longer a threat to women’s and men’s lives. We have a long road before we reach that destination, so until we reach our goal the best defense against breast cancer is early detection. Simply put, early detection saves lives. Come see our latest tool in the fight – Diagnostic Imaging Centers’ 3D Mobile Mammography Coach will be on site at the race!

Help us support our great Komen Kansas City affiliate on Sunday August 14. Some of us will run, some will walk, everyone will play – and we know you won’t want to skip out on this opportunity to celebrate yourself and your sisters (and mothers and daughters and friends…). See you there!
